A Mother's Day to Remember (or Forget) 😢

This hardworking 19-year-old found herself stuck between two jobs, with one of them completely disregarding her personal life. On Mother's Day, she was scheduled to work until 8 pm, but her managers refused to let her leave on time, causing her to miss her mom's dinner. After an hour and a half of waiting, she finally had enough and quit on the spot. The manager later texted her, saying she was unprofessional and wouldn't last long in the food industry. Now, she's left wondering if she was in the wrong. Let's see what the internet thinks of this situation... 💭🤔
